Catherine joins drive to protect children

Oct 14 2005

By David Greenwood, Daily Post


HOLLYWOOD star Catherine Zeta Jones' latest role will help raise millions of pounds to fight child cruelty in Wales.

The mum-of-two was yesterday unveiled as an ambassador for NSPCC Cymru's long-running Full Stop Appeal.

It is hoped the campaign will boost the society's UK coffers by a staggering £250m.

Last night the Welsh beauty, who is married to Michael Douglas, spoke of her ambitions for the appeal.

She said: "My childhood in Wales was a very happy one. However, I know that not all children are so lucky and I therefore want to do all I can, especially as a parent myself, to help keep them free from harm.

"Wales is still my home and I am delighted to be part of the NSPCC's very important work across the country."

The Welsh beauty, whose latest movie Entrapment 2 is about to hit the big screen, is joining the appeal's all-Wales Board.

Chairman of the appeal in Wales, Stanley Thomas, said: "Catherine will be a key support to the board's work and with her help we can go forward to achieving our goal of creating a society where all children are loved, valued and able to fulfil their potential."

In Wales alone it costs the NSPCC almost £3.5m to deliver their services.

The society runs 17 different operations across the country, including a Young Witness scheme.
